LAHORE: In yet another significant development, the contribution of Neelum Jhelum Hydropower Project to the national grid has increased to 484 megawatts (MW), as two units of the project (unit 3 and unit 2) are now generating power at their maximum capacity.
After successfully completing the reliability period, unit 3 has been formally taken over by Wapda. Having been successfully tested on various load rejections, unit 2 is generating electricity at its 72-hour reliability run. Unit 4 is getting ready for a one-month reliability test period.
Unit 1 is undergoing various tests in accordance with the contractual obligations and is expected to go on trial generation next month. The 969 MW-Neelum Jhelum Project is thus expected to generate power up to its maximum capacity by September 2018. So far, it has added over 311 million units of electricity to the national grid.
